Adelaide Gwynne Vaughan
1907 – 1993

…was born to Welsh parents in 1902, and lived almost all of her life in the house the Gwynne Vaughan Park Society is preserving today.

“Gwynnie”, as she was affectionately called, was an enthusiastic and knowledgeable gardener, and most of the heritage and specimen trees were planted either by her, or under her direction. An active member of the Chilliwack Horticultural Society (now the Chilliwack Garden Club), she established a trophy for the best narcissus in its annual Spring Show, which is still awarded in her name.

Gwynnie enjoyed a good game of bridge with close friends, and was an expert badminton player.

After marrying in the early 1950s, Sam and Gwynnie Bateman resided in Saskatchewan for a few years. The Batemans then returned to Chilliwack, where they lived in her old home, enjoying their garden and a wide circle of friends.
